The Z-Series engine could be offered in other models like the Baleno, Fronx, Ignis and Eeco in the future.
Suzuki recently showcased the fourth-generation Swift concept at the Tokyo Motor Show. As per a new report, it would be the first model to get Suzuki’s Z-Series engine.
The new Suzuki Z-Series engine (codenamed: Z12) is said to be a naturally aspirated 1.2-litre 3-cylinder unit. It will replace the current 4-cylinder K-Series engine.
The report states that the new Z-Series engine will be more fuel-efficient while maintaining the power output of the K12 unit. Peak torque, on the other hand, is said to be slightly higher, with better low-end grunt, making it ideal for city usage.
Being a 3-cylinder, the engine’s overall weight will also be lower than the K12 unit. Overall emissions are also expected to reduce, allowing Suzuki to achieve its CAFÉ targets. The Z-Series will be paired with hybrid tech in the international market.
Suzuki’s Z-Series engine is expected to debut in 2024. It could also be offered in other models like the Baleno, Fronx, Ignis and Eeco in the future.
